Dana M. Lodico began her professional acoustics career in 1999, designing small thermo-acoustic refrigeration devices. She currently focuses on transportation noise, environmental noise and vibration, quieter pavement evaluations, architectural acoustics, effects of noise on wildlife, and noise and land use planning. Ms. Lodico has contributed significantly to quiet pavement research efforts within state transportation agencies and the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP). She has conducted a vast range of highway noise studies, as well as hundreds of environmental noise and vibration studies. Her research efforts have included quiet pavement evaluations, innovative sound wall design, meteorological effects on traffic noise, truck noise source localization using acoustic beam forming, thermo-acoustic refrigeration design, and classroom acoustics. She has written and given more than 30 technical papers and presentations, contributed significantly to three AASHTO standards, and co-authored six refereed articles in the Transportation Research Record and Noise Control Engineering Journal. Ms. Lodico holds a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder and an M.S. degree with a focus on Architectural Acoustics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is a Registered Professional Civil Engineer (P.E.) in Colorado and California, and has been INCE Board Certified since 2007. Ms. Lodico was also recently elected as a Director on the Board of INCE-USA.
